“But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” James 1:5-8 NASB
How often have you thought a situation was past the point of no return? It is hopeless. It is a lost cause. It is irreversible. Many times throughout the years I have had people come to me and say something similar to, “Pastor, can you pray for my loved one? He is beyond hope but I would appreciate it if you would pray for him.” If he’s beyond hope why should I waste my time praying for him? However, if I believe in a God of whom nothing is impossible there is always hope.
Some also have the mentality since God doesn’t heal all the time they will not trust Him to heal any of the time. There are a few instances in scripture where God clearly chose not to heal. However, the great majority of the time God does heal.
The request of prayer James mentions is a request of wisdom. However, any request can be entered into this scripture with the principle requirement of faith remaining the same. When we know in our mind that God is almighty yet, come up with a multitude of reasons why He won’t answer our prayer we have become the double minded man that James warns us about. “For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord”
When we stand in need and have a burden to see God move on our behalf we need to become unwavering in our faith and set in our heart to prevail in prayer until we see heaven moved. We are not twisting God’s arm to move on our behalf. We’re not even remotely strong enough to do that. However, scripture is clear, God is almighty, there is nothing impossible for Him, and all things are possible to those who believe. We are singularly minded, standing in faith, knowing He is able, and He is willing.
